This northernmost capital city in the world is a popular center of culture, economy, and tourism. With its waterfront setting and stunning mountain vistas across the Faxa Bay, there are plenty of great places to run in Reykjavik. We’ve put together seven wonderful routes in Reykavik:  a ‘runseeing’ tour, a 5 km path along the harbor, the seaside path around the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula, paths of the Park Elliðaárdalur river valley, the Fossvogur and Laugardalur neighborhoods, and some good paths near Keflavik Airport, which is nearly 50 km from the city center.
